Research Synopsis

My research focuses on evaluating how novel digital technologies, such as artificial intelligence and data analytics, are poised to transform primary and population care. I use validated methods to both quantitatively and qualitatively assess the impacts of the introduction of these tools on the quality and workflow of clinical care. I'm particularly interested in leveraging the UTOPIAN data safe haven to answer diverse applicable research questions, and to use the data to build clinically meaningful predictive models.
